A new poster is up for the Distracted Media film THE TUNNEL. The poster was created by DLSHS and commissioned by Distracted Media as a way of thanking their investors. The image is comprised of a series of lines that contain the names of the first 1,000 people who purchased “frames” in the film.
The film THE TUNNEL was dubbed the 135k project and Distracted Media’s plan is to film a horror movie using only $135,000 by acquiring investors through selling the individual frames for $1.00 a piece.
1 Frame = $1.00 – 135,000 Frames = 90 Minutes – 90 Minutes = 1 Movie
The project is a unique experiment concocted by Distracted Media in the hopes to revolutionize the way films are created.
“In 2007 the New South Wales government suddenly scrapped a plan to utilize the water in the disused underground train tunnels beneath Sydney’s St James Train Station.
In 2008, chasing rumors of a government cover-up and urban legends surrounding the sudden back flip, investigative journalist Natasha Warner led a crew of four into the underground labyrinth.
They went down into the tunnels looking for a story – until the story found them.
This is the film of their harrowing ordeal. With unprecedented access to the recently declassified tapes they shot in the claustrophobic subway tunnels, as well as a series of candid interviews with the survivors, we come face to face with the terrifying truth.
This never before seen footage takes us deep inside the tunnels bringing the darkness to life and capturing the raw fear that threatens to tear the crew apart, leaving each one of them fighting for their lives.”
